Stayed here for 3 nights and were delighted with this hotel.
It is quite far out from the city centre but it is so accessible that this isn't a problem at all! The area around the hotel is not particularly attractive; it is very residential. There is a tram stop 1 minute walk, the number 12 takes you directly to the city centre in 25 mins: either into the castle area (Lanza stop) or to the Duomo. There is a Metro stop also (Villapizzone) 5 minutes walk away but we preferred to use the tram as the tram stop is much nearer, the subway stop is down a long narrow lane and also it is nicer to look out the window of the tram as you pass through the suburbs into Milan! You can buy a day ticket for €4.50 at the machines in the subway or in shops which allows you to use all of the trams and metros for 24 hours. This allows you to come and go to different areas of the city without fiddling for change all the time! There is a 48 hour ticket available too. It is also easy to get to from the airport: Malpensa Express to Cadorna station and then the tram/metro.
The food in the hotel bar is very expensive. The bar area is also very quiet so not much atmosphere. There are a few restaurants within 10 minutes walk of the hotel. The nearest one is if you turn right when you come out of the hotel until the end of the street and then take another right, it is just halfway up on the left. Loved this Pizzeria/Pasta restaurant: it is is so tasty, the staff are so nice and is excellent value! You can either sit in for an extra 2 euro charge, or take away your pizza/beer/dessert back to the hotel! The food is extremely fresh; you can see the man cooking your pizza in the big hearth!
Breakfast is amazing! So much choice!! Cereals, breads, herbal teas, muffins, juice, fruits, boiled eggs, wedges! Delicious!
The room is lovely and clean. It is really nicely decorated and is extremely spacious. The bathroom too is excellent: large bath, large shower, toiletries were nice, heated towel rack. Room has a fridge, a safe, tea/coffee facilities, TV with one or 2 English speaking news channels. No view to speak of from the window, but that's quite unimportant!
This was an excellent hotel to stay in, and if you prefer comfort to location then this is a great choice!
